I drop in on Comics Unlimited to see how Matt Hawes enjoyed his trip to Chicago. Of course we go on for more time than is really necessary about stuff that no one else finds interesting, but I think we saved all the juicy bits for the podcast. Matt tries to hit the Chicago Con every year, but he does it from a dual standpoint, not only as a comics enthusiast and fanboy, but also as the owner of a retail store, and his perspective of this event is slightly different. Matt Billman of Living With Zombies (.net) snuck out the door just as I turned on the microphone, so we don’t get to hear from him, but you’ll find a link to his site in the post anyway. Take that, Billman!
I spent the weekend at Fear the Con 2 in St Louis, MO. The guys over at Fear the Boot put this on, and it looks like its going to be a regular event. I debuted the Atomic Earth board game this weekend officially, and got some cool conversations with other podcasters. Also, the Watchmen premiered this weekend, and you’re getting my impressions of that event as well.
The gang is back in house, properly bribed with chili and cornbread. We caught up on the latest episodes of the new Batman cartoon – Brave and the Bold – and then talked a bit about other animated Batman incarnations, along with other shows. Plus, Curtis and Greg tell me about the new RPG from Palladium Books, “Dead Reign”. Zombie hunters beware!
